Statement

This piece is a tribute piece to Nikki Talley who is standing next to this piece, one day upon a conversation that we were having with her and her son, Nikki happened to glance at her son, and it struck me, for I was having an artist block, I realized that then she was going to be my next inspiration and we stared on the topic of snakes…. I am a sci-fi fantasy artist and I had incorporated her face as the medusa, the side profile was done by memory. In Greek mythology, the legend states that medusa was a beautiful maiden who was taken advantage of by Poseidon in Athena’s temple. As punishment Athena had transformed Medusa’s hair into serpents and made her face so horrific that the sight of her would turn any one into stone. In the end, she lived an isolated life until Perseus beheaded her as his conquest prize for King Polydectes of Seriphus. At the time she was pregnant by Poseidon. When she was beheaded a beautiful winged horse, a Pegasus sprang from her body as well as a Chrysaor, a golden sword wielding giant. I personally believe medusa was a very strong woman. The white snake that coils around her neck is to help bring the onlookers into the piece. I hope you enjoy this, it is so far one of my most favorite pieces…
